PAPER DIVA'S 2010 CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA

OH MY GOODNESS!!  That's all I have to say about the best day!  After a couple of months of planning, Extravaganza is over *sigh*.  But what a great day we all had!  Thank you to all our lovely crafty ladies who made the day so much fun for Rhonda, Debi and I!!  My whole team turned up to help in one capacity or another.  Debi, Rhonda and I taught the projects, Annie prepared the most delicious lunch, and Julie and Sharlene attended as guests.  Let me introduce them to you:

Left to Right:  Julie, Sharlene, Paula, Rhonda (back), Debi (front) and Annie

We had fifteen ladies join us for a day of learning projects and techniques, giveaways, a yummy lunch, and best of all, making new crafting friends.  My idea of a great day!

Here are some photo's of the day I would like to share with you all:



As each guest arrived, she was greeted at the door by Debi and given her Kit bag for the day.  We had a little surpise for each of them on arrival too - A water bottle and sustenance (Chocolate, of course!) all dressed up in a SU Apron and personalised with each guests name!


We had four projects to teach during the day.  The Paper Diva's took turns to teach each group.

Debi teaching her beautiful Scrap Book page.
Great to see everyone with such big smiles!




Rhonda in a slightly more serious frame of mind.  They must have been up to a tricky part in the project!

Debi presented a great display during lunch.  She showed some of the fantastic ideas you can use the ornament punch for.  I know quite a few of the ladies were so taken with her demonstration, they added this versatlie punch to their orders and wishlists!
Finally, a group picture!  Our wonderful ladies with a selection of their favourite projects of the day!

Again, Thank you all for making this such a wonderful experience for such a new team of Demonstrators and we look forward to presenting another Extravaganza in 2011.
